I'd like to say I'm against unnatural things, but realistically, if not for the intervention of unnatural medical procedures I wouldn't have lived past five even if I had been born given my mother would have died in childbirth, etc.

So I am perhaps hypocritically against unnatural things but: see "soul of an arch-conservative", hypocrisy and conservatism are natural allies.

Especially since I'm right here arguing about how they/them as third person singular is terrible but I also do, in fact, use them, because, as I was discussing, it just isn't possible to make "it" as a pronoun for a human seem anything but awful.
